Christchurch Priory Lady Chapel - FURTHER INFORMATION

Christchurch Priory Lady Chapel - Christchurch visitor guide showing a virtual tour of 'Christchurch Priory Lady Chapel' linked to an interactive map with local and travel information. 360° panoramas from Dorset.

The Lady Chapel is at the eastern end of Christchurch Priory. It was completed in the 15C and is built in early Gothic Perpendicular style. Below the large stained glass window are Reredos (a screen) which also dates from the 15C. This was originally decorated with paint & gold leaf, some traces of which can still be seen today on the restored plain stonework. The altar at the far end of the Lady Chapel is made of a single piece of Purbeck Marble from the Isle of Purbeck in Dorset, and is 3.3m long and 1.2m wide.

The Lady Chapel is accessed via North and South Quire Aisles that run along either side of the Great Quire from the nave.
